The Insurance Company will adjust the medical bills. You can send your Attorney a Certified Letter requesting that he dismiss your claim with prejudice. Absent a legal finding of Fraud, it is almost impossible for the medical providers to pursue you for payment.
We offer general concepts, but you should give ALL your facts to a licensed Attorney in your state before you RELY upon any legal advice.
You can dismiss your case as Mr. Corson suggests. You could also write your attorney and tell him you want it settled...regardless of the amount, within 30 days. You could also dismiss him as your attorney and get it settled yourself. You could also consult with another attorney and change attorneys to someone who can get the case resolved quickly.
You don't indicate what "workers comp hell" you've been put through but usually there is a deposition, a QME evaluation and then maybe a hearing. Three half days spread over 19 months doesn't sound all that hellish to me but you have to decide that for yourself.
You should really meet face to face with your attorney to make sure he knows of your other medical conditions and understands your concerns. he should be able to explain the WC process and all available options and outcomes for your case. If after the meeting you still think he or she is incompetent, get a second opinion before you make any decisions to drop your claim so you can be sure you are making the right decision.
if you have a legitimate claim you should simply ask your attorney to take the necessary steps to resolve your matter promptly and advise that you are not concerned about the amount.
